Jim Lowell’s levy checklist

JAMES R. LOWELL

A Preliminary Checklist of the Writings of d.a. levy (1942-1968)

DEAR D.A.,
Well, old friend, the sackcloth of respectability has been laid upon you. A scholarly and respected library journal is devoting an issue to you and your writings. Imagine your ashes will ignite the Cuyahoga over it, but at least it will be a pure flame. It certainly isn’t a complete checklist but it is a start. Your good friends, Douglas Blazek and Kent Taylor have been most helpful in preparing it.  With a couple exceptions I’ve limited the list to those publications entirely by you, and those edited by you. As your old gadfly, Colonel  J. Williams, would exclaim, ONWARD!

Bibliographic Checklists and Notes

The categorization of the writers, poets, artists, printers and their work here isn’t meant to be definitive, rather it’s a way to simply organize an enormous amount of information and help form some sort of storyline. Certainly there are folks here whose work started before some of the categories existed in the common lexicon and continued long after a ‘scene’ faded away. It’s not the intent of this listing to presuppose intent or oversimplify the efforts of these folks. As new pieces are added, parts will be reorganized, edited and rearranged… stay tuned…
